We practiced performing Ryotedori Tenchinage in comination with Uke kicking. In this case, the execution of Tenchinage involved using a leg sweep.
Tenchinage, one of my favorites! At our school, we work on deflecting kicks. Usually its a kick followed by a series of punches. As it was mentioned, most kicks are openings for other forms of striking as the kick is meant to close the distance between uke and nage.
